PHOTOGRAPHER.

I am a firm believer in everything WILD+FREE. And that’s exactly how I approach photography. In the wild. Free of plans. Unscripted.

The Everyday Adventure: Look for Light.

To be honest, I don’t feel very adventurous. Not even the quiet simple kind of adventure that should infuse everyday life. I don’t feel it right now. Last night Chris said to me, “You take on more than anyone I know.” I didn’t really agree, but I let him have it. “Yea,” I said, “but…

“I want to be more aware of God all the time,” he said. “I don’t want Him to be limited to 30 minutes each morning.” It’s funny because just the day before, I had been thinking the same thing. I was listening to the new Hillsong album on the way home from a wedding I…
